The CIA psychologist who helped design a program to interrogate the accused mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks says the recent withdrawal from Afghanistan "puts us more at risk." All a Biden foolish mistake and fiasco.
Dr. James Mitchell criticized the Biden administration's handling of the U.S. military's withdrawal from Afghanistan before Aug. 31 as the nation marks 20 years since 9/11 and said the Taliban will likely place blame for future attacks on other terror groups. "We've given them arms and money and a safe haven for planning the attacks," Mitchell said. "I don't know what we were thinking."
Washington spent more than $80 billion in Afghanistan over two decades and left thousands of weapons in the country after the last U.S. troops left Kabul. "In terms of responding to any attack that comes out of the Taliban, they're going to probably try to distance themselves from that," he said of the terror group. "You may remember that the Taliban told Biden that 'we won't attack your people,' and then let ISIS attack and kill those 13 Marines. ... The suggestion that we can treat the people that want to impose Sharia law on the world as if they were an ordinary government is, I think, naive."
